Carnival Time Again

Well...so much for posting every day this week; I had a busy weekend. I've still got quite a few things I wanted to post about, but first, Carnival of the Godless #70 is up at Friendly Atheist.

I am tired, so the other things I wanted to post about will wait until (at least) tomorrow.

In the meantime, open thread. Optional topic of discussion: How in the word did "earwigs" get their name, anyway? (No fair cheating by looking in a dictionary...)

I'm pretty sure that people thought they climbed in your ear and messed with your brain. They always look like they're walking backwards with the forked hindquarters.

Is it cheating if I happened to run across it online a while back? Can't remember where, now, but as I recall it was a case of a foreign word that happened to have sounds similar to 'ear' and 'wig' in it, and eventually it wound up as "earwig."

When I was ~8 an earwig grabbed onto my finger. The damn thing hurt and wouldn't let go, even after I squished its head into a thin paste. Tenacious buggers.
